Overview

Since 2006 Doddington has been our much-loved family home. We have continued Claire’s parents work in devoting ourselves to the upkeep, repair and progression of the Doddington Estate including; the development of the Farm Shop, Bike Shop, Cafe, Restaurant, Coffee Shop, Home Store, Farrow & Ball, Country Clothing Store, Bauble Barn, Christmas Tree Sales and Weddings and Events businesses; increasing public access; organising concerts and exhibitions and the development of various accommodation across the estate. There is always something new to see and do on the estate whether that is inside the Hall, in the five acres of gardens, one of our events, or on one of the estate walks. We look forward to welcoming you to Doddington.

A short drive from Lincoln this hall is still occupied by a family. It has a shopping area and sells Christmas trees and decorations at the appropriate time. Steeped in history, a 'must' for those interested in old halls and buildings.

I went here for a preconcert lunch. Fantastic food, good price. Combination with the classical music in the same place is a special treat. I went to two more of such lunches after that, in July and August.
